    Penny's Bay Development wins top award

    Penny's Bay Development wins top award

    The Civil Engineering & Development Department has been awarded the Sixth Tien-Yow Jeme Civil Engineering Prize for its infrastructure works for Penny's Bay Development.

    The Director of Civil Engineering & Development Chai Sung-veng said Jeme Tien-Yow was the forerunner in the field of civil engineering in China, adding winning the prize that is named after him is a great honour and encouragement for the department's staff.





    Top honour: Director of Civil Engineering & Development Chai Sung-veng receives the Tien-Yow Jeme Civil Engineering Prize for the department's infrastructure works for Penny's Bay Development.

    "The award is an encouragement to the civil-engineering sector and it has also proved that due recognition will be given to our high-quality projects," he said.
    The Tien-Yow Jeme Civil Engineering Prize is the greatest honour in the field of civil engineering construction nationwide. The award was set up in 1999 by the Chinese Civil Engineering Society and the Tien-Yow Jeme Civil Engineering Science & Technology Development Fund.

    Each year about 20 high-quality projects in China are awarded. A total of 131 projects have been honoured in the past six years.

    Infrastructure contracts 1 and 2 for Penny's Bay Development involved the construction of infrastructural works for the development of Hong Kong Disneyland, including roads, bridges, pumping stations, utilities, lighting, signage, hard and soft landscape works, a water recreation centre (Inspiration Lake Recreation Centre) and associated architecture.

    Works began in October 2001 and were completed in August 2005 at a total cost of $3.5 billion.

    Mr Chai received the prize on behalf of the department at the presentation ceremony in Beijing.

    Wow. It might just be the angle of the shot, but Inspiration Lake seems about the size of HKDL. It didn't seem that big in person.

    They ought change the lake to a waterpark. Given the heat is so unbearing during the summer.

    Given that the lake is closer to the camera than the park, it looks like the lake is bigger than the park but it ain't the case.
